I’m blogging from the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah!
It’s 10:40pm on Sunday. I’m 2 vodka-sodas deep, which, if you know my one-drink tolerance, is shocking. And I’m just sitting in front of the fire, watching the bobcat groomers go up and down the slopes, creating that picture-perfect corduroy for the morning.
I’m so excited to be here with my entire family. Everyone. Even my nieces. All under one roof. I just got in last night, and it’s already been a jam packed time.
I came in during a blizzard — they got 15 inches of snow overnight! So we were out first thing this morning (after church of course) shredding the powder.
But it was so worth it 🙂
And also…that gear is freaking incredible, so if you are a freeze baby like me, invest. You won’t be sorry.
Not gonna lie, I’m low key excited that Dean Unglert from the Bachelorette is at Sundance. And yeah, I know you just got that Google alert, so…Hi Dean, call me 😉
hahaha Juuuuust kidding.
Sorry, that’s the vodka talking.
Sundance never fails to produce some pretty fascinating episodes. NYC and LA converge on this quaint, sleepy mountain town and take it over, for better or for worse.
But so far, all I’ve had are some interesting chair lift conversations with random strangers.
It’s crazy how many people relocate to Park City to escape their high paced city life. I rode up with 3 different people who had done that. And all of them talked about how much more fulfilling life has become for them since getting out of the rat race.
Maybe they’re onto something.
Maybe there’s something to living in a place where you’re literally enveloped by God’s magnificence and glory in the mountains.
Or maybe there’s something to just slowing down and shutting off the social media for a while and getting off the grid.
Sounds pretty good to me.
Oh, and then my last chair was with a fella whose wife just got back from India, and eventhough she was super careful and didn’t eat any “unsafe” food there, she still ended up in the hospital back in NYC with a wicked parasite.
So yeah, that was reassuring, as I’m literally leaving for India in two weeks.
I’ve always believed that the people we ride up with on the chair lifts are placed there for a reason. It’s like God’s chance to make a “coincidental run-in” happen. I like to think He has fun doing it.
But anyways, as a result I always pay super close attention to little nuggets of truth I glean from chairlift convos.
So that India one really freaked. me. out.
So, if you need me, I’ll be researching different kinds of travel friendly, squeeze pouch toddler food that I can take with me to India…
